Tamil Nadu’s second poultry disease diagnostic lab to come up in Palladam

Tamil Nadu’s second poultry disease diagnostic lab to come up in Palladam^^^^

Animal husbandry minister Udumalai K Radhakrishnan on Friday laid the foundation stone for Tamil Nadu's second poultry disease diagnostic and surveillance laboratory (Pddsl) at Palladam here. The Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University-run facility will also house an animal feed analytical and quality assurance laboratory (Afaqal).

With 4,207 hatcheries and 52 broiler farms, Palladam is one of the major poultry hubs in the state. Thousands of people depend on the local poultry industry. The Palladam-based broiler co-ordination committee fix the local as well as international price of broiler chicken.

The industry is prone to diseases. Reports of bird flu, even in other states, bring down broiler prices. At such times, broilers should be tested periodically for diagnosis and intervention. "Presently, disease samples from Palladam have to be taken to Namakkal Pddsl for diagnosis. That's why the government decided to set up another lab in Palladam," said joint director of animal husbandry in the district R Rengasamy.

"Another major problem the poultry industry faces is price increase of poultry feed and its quality. Since poultry farms are producing the feed, it is difficult to ensure that it is nutritious. That's why the government decided to set up Pddsl and feed analytical lab on a 4.92-acre plot in Palladam at a cost of Rs 5.92 crore," said Radhakrishnan.

The government got financial assistance from the National Agriculture Development Program (NADP) and the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (Nabard) for the project. While the government has roped in the National Diary Development Board (Nddb) to provide expertise to build the twin labs, the broiler co-ordination committee has come forward to construct the compound wall at a cost of Rs 21 lakh.

Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) and PSG College of Technology have found a place in the Asia University Rankings 2018.

COIMBATORE: Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) and PSG College of Technology have found a place in the Asia University Rankings 2018. The two are slotted under a noteworthy category.

Speaking to DC, Dr K. Ramasamy the vice-chancellor of TNAU said, “our TNAU has figured 28th and 17th place in ‘Overall’ and ‘Universities’ categories respectively, by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India (GOI) and we are ranked 105 among BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) nations by the QS World University Rankings of 2018.”

The city-based educational institution has witnessed a stage by stage development during the last four years. Curriculum was modified to make it on par with industry standards, external funding for the university has also improved over the last couple of years. Of the 1,100 students who attempted the National Eligibility Test (NET) as many as 480 students cleared the test and qualified for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF).

Ranked at 33 by the National Institutional Ranking Framework in 2017, PSG College of Technology is another college from Coimbatore that has made it to the Asia University Rankings 2018 list. Among the engineering colleges in India, the Coimbatore-based college was ranked at 13 in a survey conducted by ‘India Today’ magazine in 2017 and 'Outlook India' ranked the college at 17th place in a survey carried out in 2017. “The institution has strong industry- institution tie-ups.

We have established a partnership with more than 20 Indian and International companies who have set up their research centers at our campus which enables our faculty and scholars to carry out research” Mr. L Gopalakrishnan, managing trustee, PSG Institutions said.

To calculate the top universities in region, Asia University Rankings 2018 used the same 13 university parameters as used by the World University Rankings.

Learn mridangam, nadaswaram, flute or thavil at city college soon

Learn mridangam, nadaswaram, flute or thavil at city college soon^^^^

Coimbatore: Those who wish to learn mridangam, flute, nadaswaram or thavil will be able to do so at the Government Music College at Malumichampatti near the city soon. The college authorities said they have asked the permission of the state government for starting the courses.


Principal of the college Adankovil AVS Sivakumar said that four months ago, the college had sent a request to the government for starting the four courses. “We expect the courses to begin from the coming academic year,” he told TOI. He also added that a course on folk arts would be added, which will teach all major forms of folk arts.

An official from the arts and culture department said they had been sending requests to the government for the past few years demanding the courses. “There are several official procedures to be completed for the courses to begin,” the official said. “But, it is very likely that the courses will be added from the coming academic year,” he added.

Currently, the college offers three music courses – vocal, violin and veena. Along with this, it also offers a Bharatanatyam course and a teacher training course. The courses are offered as degree courses and diploma courses, both of which are for three years. In addition, the college also offers a two-year certification course in the evening. The college currently has 71 students and 10 faculty members.

An official said that for the last 25 years, the college has been functioning only with the four departments as there wasn’t much demand for other courses. As a result, several students, after completing bachelors, joined colleges in Kerala.

Forum seeks to make ‘parai’ popular through diploma course

Forum seeks to make ‘parai’ popular through diploma course
^^^^

Coimbatore: A group of city-based parai (drums) enthusiasts has been working to take the instrument to the public by creating a formal diploma course.

When members of Nimirvu Kalaiyagam, a city-based arts forum, had gone in search for a formal course structure for parai, they couldn’t find one. This drove them to frame a syllabus for teaching parai and enlisting it as a formal diploma course.

Gnatppan Siva, the organizer of Nimirvu, says they also issue a certificate at the end of the course. “As we wanted to add value to the certificate, we would bring professional parai artistes as external examiners and would get the certificates signed by them,” he says.

“When we searched for formal parai courses, we found it was present as an optional course in government music colleges, but there were no teachers for it as there was no common notation for playing the instrument,” Siva says. “So, we gathered the literature on the instrument and the notations as given by prominent parai artistes and we created a syllabus with the help of professor T Kanagasabai of Bharathidasan University, Trichy,” he says.
T Kanagasabai, professor, department of performing arts at Bharatidasan University, says the university had a diploma and degree for folk arts.

“When Sakthi, a member of Nimirvu Kalaiyagam approached us, we framed a simple outline for their course, which they said they would strengthen. They are also working on it,” he said. With the help of Seer Valarseer Kayilaigurumani Samudhaya Kalloori, which got the course formalized under the Bharathiar University, the forum has been conducting the course.

Members of the forum say they gathered everything which was written on parai and had formed a study material. “The book ‘Parai’ written by M Valarmathi was the basic text for us,” says K S Kirupasakthi, 21, who had enrolled for the course last year. She adds that the diploma would add authenticity when they go to schools or colleges to teach the instrument.

The one-year part-time diploma course has both theory and practical components. While practical elements such as adi (beats), adavu (steps) and group performance are taught by the members of Nimirvu at Thavathiru Santhalinga Adigalar Arts, Science and Tamil College, Perur, they rope in professors from other institutions to teach theory. The theory class is held once in a month, while the practical classes are held in Coimbatore and Chennai on alternative Sundays.

More than 20 people – a mix of working professionals and college students – had enrolled for the course last year. They would be receiving their diplomas this year, says Siva.

Tough there is as an increased interest in the instrument, the patronage for the course is still low, says Siva.

Panjim, Jun 27 () US-based tech giant Cisco today said it is setting up a network of 'Cisco thingQbator' labs in five academic institutions in India, aimed at enhancing digital skills development and entrepreneurship among the student community.

The Internet of Things (IoT) makerspaces or innovation labs are being set up in collaboration with the Nasscom Foundation and will enable students to get hands on with technology and conceive digital solutions to solve local problems, Cisco Senior Vice President (IT) and CIO (International) V C Gopalratnam told reporters here at the Cisco India Summit 2018.

He added that the five academic institutions chosen for setting up these 'thingQbator' makerspaces are Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, (IIITMK), Kerala, IIT-BHU Varanasi, Amrita University Coimbatore, Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women- Delhi and Trident Academy of Technology Bhubaneswar.

Gopalratnam said the company is undertaking various initiatives and programmes in the country that will "positively impact 50 million beneficiaries in India by 2025".

"This goal is aligned to Cisco's global vision of impacting 1 billion lives worldwide by 2025 through digital solutions," he added.

He explained that the company -- which has over 10,000 people in India -- is engaged with the government and community organisations in the country in various areas like education, economic empowerment, and environmental sustainability.

"We are also supporting N/Core, an incubator for social sector startups, to launch N/Core tech - an exclusive track focussed on incubating early-stage non-profits that leverage digital technology to positively impact society," Gopalratnam said.

Three B.Tech students in Tamil Nadu develop India’s first self-driving wheelchair

Three B.Tech students in Tamil Nadu develop India’s first self-driving wheelchair
^^^^



Three final-year engineering students of Amritha Vishwa Vidyapeetham University in Coimbatore have developed a self-driving wheelchair called ‘Self-E’ with an autonomous navigation system which ensured easy travel of users from one place to another without user intervention. The Robotic Operating System (ROS) helps navigate automatically making it user-friendly. The user can touch any point on the generated map, and the wheelchair will drive to that place automatically navigating its own path and avoiding obstacles.

Unlike the imported wheelchairs, Self-E would cost only less than a lakh once the technology is successfully commercialized in India.

Dr Rajesh Kannan Megalingam, Asst. Professor of Electronics & Communications at the university is the brain behind the project. He said: “The Self-E self-driving wheelchair is unique in the sense that it is the first self-driving wheelchair in India built by research lab of a university without any collaboration with foreign universities or companies. It now needs to be tested in different environments like hospitals and airports with patients and wheelchair users. The current version is a successful prototype and, with the help of Technology Business Incubator of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, we hope to commercialize the product.”

The three students who designed the Self-E wheelchair – Chinta Ravi Teja, Sarath Sreekanth and Akhil Raj – have been working for the last two years as junior researchers at the same college.

The newly designed wheel-chair maps the surrounding environment, including dynamic and static obstacles such as people, walls, pillars, tables, chairs, etc. using a laser sensor called LiDAR which will be facilitated in any Android smartphone or tablet through a specially developed app.
